Wimbledon 2003

Some notes from this year's Wimbledon championships:

  • Roger Got Game -- Artistry is back in men's tennis in a big way. Forget the Hispanic (Lantin Americans and the Spaniards) workhorses, Roger Federer exhibited classic stroke play in winning the Wimbledon. He has elements of both Andre Agassi and  Pete Sampras in his game.
  • The huge entertainment the men's semifinals and finals provided sharply contrast to the most predictable matches in the women's side, and the old discussion of same title, same money has re-emerged.
  • NBC Invents Time Machine -- How else can they show so many matches livein different time-zones at noon at every time-zone? I hate NBC.
  • Martina, My Main Woman -- Coupled with Leander Paes, Martina Narvatilova wins the Mixed-Doubles title. When the younger Martina (Hingis) is considering retirement at the age of twenty, this one at forty-six, won two Grand slams this year (She also won Australian Open).
  • Racist, and Sleeps-with-the-Racist Defeated -- If you are a tennis fan, you know what I am talking about. I can't stand 'em. After the French Open incident, I can't stand Justine Henin-Hardenne either. I was glad to see Serena crush her. (only constructive criticism please)
